In view of particular importance of rehabilitation measures being carried out in conditions of intensification of training and competitive processes, it is extremely important to find the most effective means of rehabilitation, including using various gas mixtures which components can have a targeted effect on various mechanisms underlying the rehabilitation processes.
Objective of the study was to rate benefits of different gas mixtures applied for rehabilitation in elite cycling sport after acute physical fatigue. 14 elite cyclists sampled for the study were tested once a week by a new gas mixture each time. The study data were processed by the variation statistic tools using the Student t-criterion. A special priority in the study was given to the physical working capacity building mechanisms. Breathing with gas mixtures was found to facilitate the homeostatic controls of the oxygen consumption regimen, with the control process varying with variations in the gas mixture. Findings of the study are recommended for application in rehabilitation system design.

Keywords: gas mixtures, acute fatigue, rehabilitation, cyclists.
